Default windows & camera issue with usb

when I plug in my fuji s5000 into the usb windows accepts it but the scanner and camera wizzard does not pop up. Is there a way to set this to come up by itself?

You don't use that. With most digital cameras, they appear as an external drive (another letter). I just go into Windows Explorer, click on the camera's drive letters, and copy the pictures from there to the hard drive (an idea is to have a directory on the hard drive with the camera's name so it's easy to remember).

Many people here will also suggest getting a card reader instead of plugging in the camera...it will save your camera's batteries when reading from the card, and it will reduce the chance of your PC damaging your camera (some Palm users have reported problems when they hook their Palm up to the USB port). Just make sure the card reader is the right format for the card(s) your camera uses.

If you can forget USB (for your camera) altogether

Try a USB reader!

Go here for info on them:

Most readers still plug into the USB, so you can't forget USB altogether.

The Reader will also appear as an external drive. I prefer to download from my reader than the camera.
